Well, since I didn't post a reminder for last week's quiz, we'll use this space as a reminder to go play this week's quizly goodness. And, as a bonus, we can have the answers to the "fake quiz" I posted back in June. Sorry about all this delay; I went on vacation and then took some time to catch up. It's been a busy summer.

Look, monkeys!

(Yes, that's a much much MUCH younger me. Yes, I'm on the left. Shut up.)

Heeeeeere we go with fake quiz!Collapse )

Well bugger me bollocks, I seem to have forgotten to post a quiz this week. Like Ray Charles, I did not see this coming.

So next week we'll just have to have a larger-than-average quiz. Or maybe lots of smallish quizzes. Or something.

Here's a practice quiz, just to give you something to do this weekend:

1. Whoops! You just got turned into a non-human animal. What are you now?

2. Yowzers! You're on trial! What crime are you being accused of? What crime did you actually commit?

3. Zoiks! Now you're being hunted by some kind of monster or mythical beast. What's after you? Why? Does it get you? If so, what does it do to you?


5. Maybe there aren't. How many lights are there? Where are you that has all these damn lights? What the hell is going on?

See you soon!

All hail the barbecue, that wonderful method of meat making that heralds the onslaught of summer's summery ways. What does this have to do with anything? Not much really. Sure, Americans are getting ready for a nice long holiday weekend, which usually includes barbecues, but what really counts is that there's still a quiz up for playing, and that will make a good filler for when you're marinading your meat. If you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Go. Play. Eat Meat. Take Quiz.
